Patterns of End-Stage Renal Disease Caused by Diabetes, Hypertension, and Glomerulonephritis in Live Kidney Donors

Completing the trilogy of papers published in the December issue of the American Journal of Transplantation that was dedicated to living donors, our lab looks for Patterns of End-Stage Renal Disease Caused by Diabetes, Hypertension, and Glomerulonephritis in Live Kidney Donors.

We looked at studies averaging less than 10 years of follow-up to better understand postdonation ESRD.

Lab members Allan Massie, PhD and Sunjae Bae, KMD MPH had their papers published in the July issue of American Journal of Transplantation.

 

A Risk Index for Living Donor Kidney Transplantation (pages 2077–2084)

This study proposes a risk index for living donor kidney transplant recipients, the LKDPI, which quantifies the risk of graft loss on the same scale as the KDPI. See editorial on page 1951 from Schold and Kaplan.

 

Changes in Discard Rate After the Introduction of the Kidney Donor Profile Index (KDPI) (pages 2202–2207)
S. Bae, A. B. Massie, X. Luo, S. Anjum, N. M. Desai and D. L. Segev

Providing the Kidney Donor Profile Index (KDPI) with deceased donor kidney offers is associated with increased discards of standard criteria donor kidneys with KDPI > 85, a subgroup where the old standard/extended criteria donor designation and the new KDPI scoring deliver opposing messages, suggesting the possibility of a labeling effect.
